Nicolle Wallace Goes After GOP ‘Lemmings’ Who Remain Silent While ‘Mueller’s Character is Assassinated’

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace went off on Republicans for acting like stooges and not speaking up against the attacks on Robert Mueller‘s personal record.

Wallace used a portion of her show on Monday to talk with her panel about the latest efforts by President Trump and Rudy Giuliani to smear the Russia special counsel investigation as a “witch hunt.” Since a lot of GOPers embrace Trump in order to improve their political fortunes, Wallace went after the “lemmings” acting like the president’s servile lackeys.

“I cannot articulate how bizarre it is to watch Republicans stand silent as Mueller’s character is assassinated. He was George W. Bush‘s hand picked director of the FBI. He started days before 9/11…He’s one of the architects of the counterterrorism policies that kept this country safe after 9/11 from another attack on the homeland. The idea that his job is in danger from a bunch of Republican lemmings marching along to the beat of Donald Trump’s lunacy is the biggest disgrace of his presidency.”

MSNBC Contributor Eli Stokols followed Wallace’s point by noting the increasing political tribalism and shift in conversation regarding the possibility that Trump could fire Mueller.
